EVENT DATE: May 01, 2013
I have been accepted to participate in a two-week service project in Ghana. While there, I will have a chance to expand upon my interest in humanitarian work by examining public health issues within the community through working with native leaders. I will also observe and analyse the process of combining Western medicinal knowledges with traditional African medicine and culture by visiting medical clinics, hospitals, and traditional healers. I will also be exploring the culture of Ghana and immersing myself in an entirely different reality than the one I currently inhabit in Northern Virginia. Please help make this experience possible!
